M19 event protocol

Event order

Feel free to come and see us before the 3pm start but bear in mind we will be setting up. Many associates choose to arrange additional meetings between themselves before as well. We politely ask you to arrive five to ten minutes before 3pm to grab teas, coffees and seats before we begin. 
Then the order is usually:
Welcome and mingle = timing varies
Introduction and announcements = 5mins
Expert Talk = approx 10mins (inc Q + A)
Speed Meet = approx 30-60mins
Consolidations and mingle = regular networking 

Event details

All the event details (including the address) are on the free booking ticket through EventBrite. Here is the next one for Brighton and here is the next one for Burgess Hill. We are endeavouring to keep the events fresh and enjoyable. However, as we are work in progress we welcome feedback, even though much of what we do has already been well thought through.

Attendees

We've designed our gatherings to incorporate a mix of those who are established, for example: - prestigious business, company reps, experienced freelancers, successful traders, SMEs, small business, brands and networkers; together with those looking to become established (we have vetted) :- new to business, start-ups, charities, business support, government-funded project seekers, inspiration searchers, friends, ex-colleagues, traders in their first two years, local networkers, regional project managers and network first-timers.

Non-attendance

Meet 19 is a free event, but as places are limited you must let us know in advance – at least 24hrs before the event – if you can't make it so we can arrange a replacement guest. If a person doesn't attend without letting us know then out of fairness and sustainability we will ask for £5 to cover the costs of admin, organisation, booking, promotion and for the space that could have been taken. This is also clearly explained on the original Eventbrite invite. Your position can easily be placed back on the invite list for a later event if you like.

Network follow-up and continuity

Note that we have a designated Meet 19 Facebook page (link below) for those seeking inspiration plus a group page on LinkedIn (link below) for those already trading. Our blogsite www.meet19.org also features three network blogs: Experts in the Field, Enterprise Support and Network News. We also have a Twitter feed (link below) to link all this and suggest using the channels where you feel you can gain the most.
